    Summary

    Everything was perfect. Saren was defeated. Sovereign fell from the sky. They'd survived it all and discovered something more... in each other. And then it all fell apart. Shepard took the rest of the team to investigate the continuing geth sighting. C-Sec obligations forced Garrus to stay behind... And when she'd needed him most, he wasn't there to watch her six. The love of his life died over Alchera and the galaxy came crashing down around him. An avenging spirit emerged that day. He called himself: Archangel.

    Summary

    After leaving Horizon, Commander John Shepard has focused on recruiting the rest of his team. But when Miranda finds intel on what turns out to be a rogue Cerberus operation in a secluded part of the Traverse, he ends up with a new teammate he never expected - himself, from another timeline. It turns out Shep is no clone, though; she’s her own woman, and though they share backgrounds as Mindoir survivors and heroes of the Skyllian Blitz, there’s just as much setting them apart as there is that proves they’re both the Commander Shepard. Under the care of the familiar faces of her crew that nonetheless isn’t her crew, she adopts the identity of John’s long-lost sister, and tries to find her place in a galaxy she knows and yet seems like it might forever be foreign.

    She’s a force to be reckoned with, and though her own universe has been destroyed by the hubris of the rogue operation, she’s determined to save his own right alongside him - and to reunite him with the man he misses the most from his own original crew... even as she tries not to think about just how close she and this Garrus are becoming - or how close she wants to become.

    Summary

    A UNSC cruiser activates a dormant Relay, forcing the politically divided UNSC into a new war against the Reaper menace. Discovering the races of the Citadel, and more importantly a second form of Humanity, the stage is set for events that will utterly shatter the Galaxy. Enemies old and new will rise. The UNSC must fight not just conventional enemies, but enemies within. And enemies that know them even better than they know themselves.

    The Master Chief, distraught after the loss of Cortana to the Didact, will find himself once again in the middle of Humanity's greatest struggles. Commander Shepard and the crew of the Normandy after fighting the Reapers and Cerberus for several months must confront the reality of dealing with an extremely brutal and militaristic branch of Humanity: The UNSC, who refuse to transfer power to a civilian government after the events of Requiem.

    Only one group can claim the Mantle of Responsibility. War is inevitable. Political intrigue a given. Death is certain.

    The Reclamation has already begun, and we are hopeless to stop it.

    Summary

    Three years, countless battles, and one fiery ending to the Reaper War.

    Jagher Shepard and Kaidan Alenko knew when they said goodbye before the beam that it might be the last time they saw one another; they'd known since the beginning there was a good chance one or both of them might die in the fight against the Reapers. Jagher would have given anything to make it safely down from the Crucible, but she would never choose saving her life over saving the galaxy. Kaidan wouldn't have expected anything else, but he would have been there with her if he could have.

    But as the galaxy begins to rebuild, and Kaidan and the crew of the Normandy finally make their way back to Earth, the major is met with some unexpected news.

    Shepard is alive.

    Summary

    “Nobody knows why we got these,” Kezk shrugs when Aubine asks about the words painted over her armored hump, “Some people say they’re reminders of people that affected the course of our lives. Some people say they’re soulmates or some other bullshit like that.”
    “What do you say?”
    Kezk laughs and slaps her tiny shoulder. “I say that if you ever want to charge like a krogan, you’ve got to get a handle on those biotics first.”

    Aubine Shepard has more words on her than anyone probably should. She has dozens of 'thank yous,' several sets of words from those she's fought and come out the only one standing, and a set of sapphire on her arm she uncovers when she needs to. She's a war hero, one of the most famous Alliance operatives at this point, so she supposes it's a little expected.
    The Reaper is not.
    (Or: a soulmate mark subversion that follows Shepard through the trilogy, looking at the consequences of the trope. Like words from a Reaper.)

    Summary

    "It's happening again... everyone is dying around me."

    Tau Volantis should have been the end.
    The markers were dead. The Machine had done its work and the Moons were either dead or asleep. It had to be over.

    But the machine had one more secret in store. One that would bring Isaac to a place where the danger was just about to rear its head, full of billions of helpless lives that would once more count on him. It was the Milky Way. Much like the home he had known before, with an Earth and a Sol, and all the places he thought he knew. Only now there are aliens. Ones that can talk to him, still alive and breathing unlike the old inhabitants of Tau and interconnected with humanity in a great interspecies society spanning lightyears across the entire galaxy.
    For them, he is an anomaly; A human equipped with technology far beyond their wildest dreams. Commander Shepard, known as a hero across the galaxy, takes interest in him. It's not for vanity; It's because Shepard knows that the galaxy is in danger, and that Isaac and his skills will be needed to face the coming storm.

    The reapers are coming.
    And with them a maelstrom of madness and destruction that will take everything Isaac has to weather.
